Kickstarter: Chougny, the additional button for your Android device




Some manufacturers have already installed it: Create a custom AUX button on the smartphone or tablet. Unfortunately, not all manufacturers and there is such a button but absolutely practical. Just the thought also Nimrod and Boaz, and therefore they have Chougny devised the AUX button for Android for the jack connector.

How does it because really, and why is not there someone have thought of it earlier? Four-pole jack plug for smartphones there are a dime a dozen, because these are used by the headset. We have here the conventional rings for the left and right sound channel, plus a mass and then the fourth ring for the additional functions. This is so needed in most headset, because we also usually still hanging a small remote control on the cable near the microphone. Now the makers of Chougny have a button attached directly to a jack and enable us so to almost any Android device to install an additional button.

It will initially be available only for Android, although the developers tinker especially at a Cydia app to assist the Chougny, but here there is nothing tangible.

The button is also caused by Chougny but have not only a function. By the corresponding app you will be able to call several functions with different combinations, similar to Morse code. So you can adjust that with a long press of the button opens the camera app and with a short press makes a picture. It would also be possible with a long and a short subsequent pressure to call a different function or start another app, your imagination is the limit. I recommend you to watch the video project, it is amusing and informative established.

For the Early Bird Specia (at Chougny it is the Early Bear Special) for $ 15, we are already too late, here were only the first 300 supporters Chougny the opportunity to get a bit cheaper. For $ 17, but you already get the Chougny and for $ 20 the Chougny with the key fob case, for where the Chougny if you want to listen to music and it needs the jack. Who wants to have something special that sets for $ 45 to the golden Chougny. For app developers, there is also the option for $ 1000 to make its own app compatible with Chougny.

The goal of $ 40,000 has now, two days after the start of the project, already surpassed several times and currently has 6,200 Chougny supporters who have joined together to get $ 143.134 to finance the project. It will be interesting how high the total at the end when the project ends in 45 days. In March 2014 Chougny to be completed and then come on the market.
